Terrestrial Globe by Heyman – circa 1910  

A  4” diameter miniature terrestrial globe made up of twelve chromolithographed paper gores and two polar calottes.  It stands 9 1/4" tall.  The equator is graduated in degrees, and the oceans showing currents.  Bulgaria is shown, St. Petersburg, and the Panama Canal not present -- all help date the globe to circa 1910.  The cartouche is signed, “Erd-Globus, 10 cent., N.d. neuesten Quehen entw, Berlin, Ludw. Jul. Heyman.”  The globe is in fine condition with good varnish and color, with surface abrasions as shown.  The stand is turned ebonized wood with a compass insert.  The globe is a fine example of an early 20th century terrestrial globe .
